Picturesque views from Nagasaki

Huis Ten Bosch is not the only place to visit at Nagasaki Prefecture. The stunning 'Night-View' from Mt. Inasa will lead you to believe, there is a lot more.

The famous night view from the mountain top is selected as one of “3 Best Night Views in Japan”, with Hakodate and Kobe being the other two.

You can relax and enjoy for much longer because the observation deck is not as busy at night as it is during the day.
